Iridology is the study of the iris of the eye.  The iris reveals physiological conditions, psychological health risks, challenges and/or strengths of various organs as well as personality traits.  There is a relationship between the physical organs and tissues of the body and what is revealed in the iris.  These relationships are indicated in the fibres, markings and colours present in the iris. These markings represent a detailed picture of the integrity of the body; it’s constitutional potentials, areas of congestion or toxic accumulations and inherent challenges and gifts.

Iridologists can offer insight into one’s overall health as well as reveal any trends that the client may be experiencing towards illness.  Their goal is one of reversal and prevention, to recognize health issues at their earliest stages and to offer suggestions to keep dis-ease conditions from developing.

Through iridology we can get an understanding of one’s past, present and potential future health conditions by assessing the various body systems.  Inherited tendencies compounded by toxic accumulations in various parts of the body may also be revealed.

The four principles that form the cornerstones of iridology are:

  1. The condition of the nerves
  2. The condition of the blood and lymph system
  3. Adequate circulation
  4. Nutrition – rest quality, breathing – state of mindThe health or lack thereof, in the digestive tract is a major part of the puzzle of health as well.

Iridology offers a unique perspective to the concept of preventive medicine.  It is difficult to alert a person to the health problems that his or her particular body will experience, using traditional methods of analysis and diagnosis.  These methods rely upon the appearance of clinical symptoms.  The iris, however, can indicate a problem in its earliest stage, long before disease symptoms are present.  With this information, a holistic protocol can be developed which is tailored to the specific needs of the client, thus preventing the manifestation of disease.
